    1. This book was beneficial in assisting me with better understanding the experiences my clients live through with Dissociative Identity Disorder. Although not compiled specifically for clinicians, I found it gave me insight that I wouldn't have gotten in an academic piece.I highly recommend this book for anyone who lives with DID, for their family and friends, and for Therapists and Case Managers who work with people diagnosed with DID (MPD). The book encourages empathy with, and greater understan [...]

It is, instead, a collection of various writings done by people who live with DID, whether multiples themselves or their spouses/friends/fami [...]

    5. This book was mentioned in Cuckoo by Madison Clell and given that I have recently been interested in reading about DID I decided to give it a shot. I imagine that the book is helpful for most people with MPD as there's a wealth of personal stories being told here. I'm also starting to understand the book's historical context since literature on MPD was scarce when it was compiled in the early 90s.That said, I have one major complaint I'd like to address and it's the editing. The chapters in this [...]
